For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus. Romans 3:23-24
Guilt can wreak complete havoc with your emotions and can have a destructive effect on your approach to life. This is particularly true in our spiritual lives and there are many people who have suffered because of this.
There are indeed few people – if any – who have not at one time or another experienced the torment of spiritual barrenness. They were heavily laden under a blanket of guilt that had being brought about by some or other mistake that they have made.
The tragedy of these circumstances lies in the fact that you allow yourself to feel isolated from the grace of God; you think that you are no longer worthy of God’s love because of your guilt. In many instances this self-chastisement has destructive results in your thinking, your physical health as well as your spiritual well-being. In circumstances of this nature you can easily be robbed of your faith and as a result endure torment and find yourself in a spiritual wilderness.
In order to ensure that you do not fall prey to a guilt complex, it is imperative that you do not lose sight of the fact that Christ, when He took our guilt upon Himself, also assured you of God’s love for you. Therefore, there is forgiveness for you and Jesus is waiting to welcome you back into His flock. Simply open your heart to His grace by confessing your sins. Accept His incomprehensible act of grace and live a life of fulfillment in Jesus Christ.
